On Our Way

We started our two week summer vacation today. The first leg of our trip has us in Idaho Falls at my aunt and uncle's house for the night. Tomorrow we will continue on our way to Springville, Utah for a family reunion. My grandma and grandpa's family started out with five kids and has grown to about 70 people now. It will be great to see all the family I haven't seen in a few years and meet members of the family I haven't met before.

We will also take some time in Utah for the kids to visit with their paternal grandparents. They haven't seen them in four years, so they are really looking forward to seeing family. Rick and I will have a day to wander around and do whatever we want while the kids visit.

Then we are off to Arizona. I know. Crazy. We were going to go at Christmas, but when the gas prices went up we decided to combine it with our family reunion trip. My mom and brother are in Arizona so we get to visit it that side of the family for a few days.

So we will spend the next two weeks doing lots of driving and lots of visiting. I also managed to write 1359 words today as we drove. If I can manage that every day we are driving I should be able to finish my WIP soon.

Hooray for you, Stephanie! That's a long trip, but it sounds like a good one.

If everyone is fed, watered (but not too much), and plugged in, car writing can really make the miles go by.

Sweet that you can write in the car! I get too car sick! Ah well. Hope you have a great trip!

What a great trip! Sounds awesome! Maybe when you're here we can arrange a meet so I can give you something ;)

Stop on by my blog and see!

Hey there,

I don't know if you're checking your mail while you drive, but I need your final word count for the July BIAM, if you get this!

Don and Shanna - car writing is good. I don't get sick, but I do tend to fall asleep on long drives. I did get quite a few words in so far.

Ali - I emailed you.

Tristi - thanks for the reminder.
